Beating the System

Old Way: Grow rice, lose valuable rice harvest following infestation of golden apple snails (Pomacea spp.). New way: Using the tips provided in this module offered by the Open Academy for Philippine Agriculture, convince golden apple snails to avoid rice and instead dine on the weeds of the rice paddies. If it works, you get a good rice harvest and escargot to boot!

Thanks to a member of the ALIENS-L listserver for posting a link to the site.
